    Did a pretty simple recipe for my 1st one, "Dirty Boh 2.0" https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/851265/dirty-boh-v2/299668 Efficiency was better than I expected, punching the numbers into the calculator I came up with 80%, I was shooting for 75 and hoping to get at least 70...guess it's going to be a bit higher ABV than I had originally planned.

    I'll wait and see how it tastes, it's all a learning process at this point anyway. I will say that the Viking Pilsner Malt smelled wonderful in the mash tun. Ordered another 40 pounds of it.

    Congrats and welcome to your new obsession. You can look at these forums as kind of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting but for beer brewing!

    Good job. Don't obsess over efficiency. Mine goes up and down due to grain bill, mash temps, measurement error, and a whole host of other things.
